I'm going backpacking in New Zealand soon. Maybe I'll see him. Sounds like the 'Belgrave Wizard' a similar guy around where I live...

There's a guy around where I live who lives in a shopping trolley, that has all his worldly possessions also inside it. He takes this trolley everywhere, and is completely allowed to do so - even on buses, which is completely breaking the law but yknow... a mans gotta travel.

I regularly see him on my walk to and from college, combing his beard and creating a sandwich out of the most extravagant of food products. One time, I stepped out of my front door and he was actually walking around my road... I have no idea how he managed to get there.

He sometimes goes away for a while, and some other, younger fella takes over the whole trolley-pushing business... I don't know the relation between the pair, but the general consensus is that the older one pays the younger one to look after the trolley whilst he goes on holiday.

There is any number of these people in every major town so to love or hate them is kinda lame. Moondog is still the ultimate hobo.
